Apple Music is coming to Amazon Echo devices in December

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Amazon's speakers are getting better in that regard in the near future, as the company has announced that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices later this year.

Availability of Apple Music is a fairly big deal, as it was previously only streaming on Apple's pricey HomePod speakers.

Project Fi is now Google Fi and supports phones from Samsung, OnePlus, and even iPhones

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

 

Project Fi has made the leap that all fledgling Google projects aspire to - after around three-and-a-half years, it has dropped the "project" and evolved into "Google Fi," with a brand new logo to boot. Along with the name change, Google has announced that the wireless provider now supports "the majority of Android devices," including Samsung and OnePlus handsets, and iPhones (in beta).

The addition of phones from these new brands significantly broadens the operator's scope, since it previously only offered service for Pixels and select Nexus, Motorola, and LG devices. Google has posted lists of all the Fi-supported smartphones, including iPhones from 5S through XS, and Samsung smartphones from S6 to S9 (along with several others).

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

According to a report out of the New York Times yesterday, Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg ordered the company's high-level managers to switch to Android phones earlier this year. It's not clear if the order was ever enforced, or to what degree, but it apparently came on the heels of an MSNBC interview in which Tim Cook openly criticized Facebook's data collection and privacy policies in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and associated congressional hearings.

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

Augmented Reality may not yet be the game-changer some of its proponents would hope it to be, but little by little it's been coming into its own. AR's been in the spotlight this month thanks to the launch of the Pixel 3 and Google's re-branding of its AR Stickers app as Playground, but that's just the half of it — we've also seen a number of new devices join the list of official AR Core-supporting hardware.

[Update x2: Amazon, Apple, Supermicro, and Chinese govt. issue denials] Chinese government snuck secret surveillance chip into servers at Apple, Amazon, and dozens more according to report

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Take this with the proverbial grain of salt, but Bloomberg has published a detailed investigative report today alleging that a list of U.S. Companies, including Amazon and Apple, suffered a security intrusion via hardware infiltration. This isn't a hack in the software sense, it's a result of literal physical modification to server motherboards at the time of manufacturing by subcontractors in China, allegedly coerced by operatives working for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army — making this a potentially state-backed attack.

Google estimated to be paying $9 billion to be Safari’s default search engine

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

For search engines, there's nothing more lucrative than being the default provider on a popular web browser. In the past, companies have paid massive amounts of money for the position; Yahoo gave Mozilla over $300 million to be the default engine for Firefox, but the company was later outbid by Google. A new report estimates that Google's place as the default iPhone search engine is costing the company $9 billion this year.
